The throttle feature can slow down traffic to thwart denial of service attacks.
Can be used in
<throttle delay="long" maxThreads="int" busyDelay="long" />
This sample delays every request for a second and limits the number of concurrent clients to five. After 3 seconds of waiting a client gets a timeout if there are no threads left to serve its request.
<serviceProxy port="2000"> <throttle delay="1000" maxThreads="5" busyDelay="3000"/> <target host="www.predic8.de" /> </serviceProxy>
|busyDelay||false||0||If a newly incoming request exceeds maxThreads, the interceptor waits the specified number in milliseconds and retries once before aborting the request.||3000|
|delay||false||0||If non-zero, delays requests by specified number of milliseconds.||1000|
|maxThreads||false||0||If non-zero, newly incoming request are aborted if the number of running requests has reached this limit.||5|
